Environment Canada is calling for a daytime high of 28 degrees, with a humidex of 30.

A cold front is expected to move through the region Tuesday, bringing an end to extreme heat, Environment Canada said in the warning posted early Sunday morning.

As of Monday afternoon, the forecast for Friday shows temperatures are supposed to reach a high of 36 C in Regina and 37 C in Saskatoon - temperatures well above normal for this time of the year. "Overnight minimum temperatures will only fall to near 20°C, except 22 to 24 over some urban areas, providing little relief from the heat".

High temperatures mean big health risk for young children, pregnant women, the elderly, people with chronic diseases and those who work outdoors.
